The Albion Foundation
Our WBA ONE OFFER for primary schools works in line with the Premier League Primary Stars delivery and is part-funded by the Premier League Charitable Fund. We are big believers in growing our own staff through a structured CPD programme to constantly develop.
Schools will not only receive value for money, but through innovative, well organised, engaging, and relevant sports activities, all delivered in line with OFSTED and National Frameworks, pupils will develop holistically.
All delivery staff will have a minimum level 2 in at least one NGB sport, will be first aid and safeguarding trained with a valid and in-date DBS Disclosure in place, and will have completed, or be working towards, the AfPE Level 3 Certificate in Delivering Physical Education and School Sport.
P.E is a crucial element of school life and ultimately children’s future well-being. Therefore, the PE curriculum we follow at Moorcroft Wood Primary School ensures that each pupil who experiences it, will have and maintain a love of being active that lasts a lifetime.
At Moorcroft Wood our P.E lessons are delivered by Specialist Sports coaches from the West Bromwich Albion Foundation. It is both theirs, and Moorcroft’s intent that we provide an inclusive, broad and balanced P.E curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities whether that be through enhancing existing skills or acquiring new skills.
We strive to ensure that each pupil has the opportunity to access the components of our PE curriculum in order to reach the following objectives:
We support all children in reaching their full potential within a secure and caring environment and we use our Moorcroft Wood values to promote positive attitudes to learning in lessons:
Physical Education at Moorcroft Wood is taught by Specialist Sports coaches from the West Bromwich Albion Foundation. These coaches ensure that Physical Education is taught at Moorcroft Wood as an area of learning, as well as being integrated where possible with other curriculum areas.
Specialist Coaches from the West Bromwich Albion Foundation deliver a curriculum that pupils from the age of 4 to the age of 11 not only enjoy but also allows them to experience a range of activities that broaden their knowledge and experience. PE consists of two hourly lessons per week and throughout each term, Year 5 and 6 receive high quality swimming lessons where there is also a focus on performing lifesaving strokes.
The key knowledge and skills of each topic are mapped across each year group. This ensures that children develop their knowledge of games, dance, gymnastics and athletics progressively throughout the whole school. The skills in these areas are also developed systematically, with the programme of study for each year group building on previous learning and preparing for subsequent years. Knowledge and skills are informed and linked to enable achievement of key stage end points, as informed by the 2014 National Curriculum.
Coaches teach lessons so that children develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. Every lesson requires the children to think of the importance of preparing their body for physical activity, acquiring and developing new knowledge and skills and also evaluating and improving their performances and the performance of others.
As part of the Albion Foundation and the Premier League Primary Stars programme, children are given a wide range of opportunities to engage in inter and intra competitions throughout the year. This allows them to communicate, collaborate and compete against each other on a consistent basis. Children from Year 3 upwards also have access to after school clubs, each focusing on different sports, allowing pupils to develop themselves as a whole person, build a sound knowledge of basic skills and build a positive relationship with physical health.
Children receive two hours of PE each week. One lesson will focus on one sport and the second lesson will focus on a different sport.
